Hebrews 12:1-3

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we'd better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!

Looking forward to a great week!

We had a great week at home. The house is almost all done just a few things here and there to complete but certainly livable. It was fun getting the girls settled into school life again and catching up with family and friends. I was also able to squeeze in a few physiotherapy appointments as well. We are on the road again to Detroit with a little excitement of seeing a bear on the 416, having to come to a complete stop. Mike and I are excited to get going again, looking forward to see what gains can be made this week. On Wednesday they will assess my abilities which will be interesting to see the differences in the numbers from when I was originally assessed 5 weeks ago. Life has been full of challenges but we are starting to figure it out slowly. I'm thankful for a God that is full of grace and gives us what we need for the day.  You start to realize just how much you need Him when your struggling through a trial, I just wish we could realize that prior to having the trial. Thank you to all of you, who have kept us in your prayers we so appreciate it. Praying for all of you! Big Hugs Sandra 


  1. Sandra and Mike,
    Praying for your week in Detroit -- lots of strength and courage to face those hard workouts.
    Eric & Brenda

  2. Hi Sandra & co... Saw you at church this morning across the sanctuary and didn't get the chance to say hello. We're still praying for you and thankful for the updates via your blog. May you continue to be filled with peace & joy as you face each week's challenges and trust our Saviour wherever He leads you. Blessings on you all.

  3. Dear Sandra & Mike - thinking about you and praying often these days as you're back on the road again. Wherever you are, we're rallying around you and, more importantly, God will never leave or forsake you. Looking forward to sharing the rest of the journey with you...whatever that looks like!

    Lots of love and blessings, Greta & Tom

  4. Psalm 55:22 says "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee" Although we don't know what is ahead and we tend in our flesh to worry about what is going to happen in the future the Lord says to give Him all your burdens and He will receive them so that we can feel hopeful that He will do something great with them. Trials teach us kingdom glory and when we have learned the lesson, He will answer our prayers. Praying that the power of God will manifest in your physical body and the Lord will restore your health. He is willing, because He is the Lord our healer. Psalm 30:2 says : O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
